Artist's Statement

A quote from Grant Wood describes a condition from which he and many of us suffer: taking too much for granted. Wood said, "...To my great joy, I discovered that in the very commonplace, in my native surroundings, were decorative adventures and that my only difficulty had been in taking them too much for granted." Woods' words ring with truth. My goal as an artist is to capture the wonder of the often overlooked ordinary, the commonplace beauty around us, those little details that make all the difference in our daily lives. The rough hue of rocks, lush blue woodlands, weathered wood grains, and distant meandering dirt roads never cease to appeal to me. I attempt to share the beauty from which routine blinds us. My work can be purchased on ebay or by contacting me personally.

Border Tourist 11x14 80.00

Today was my last day of work for the summer. For the past few summers, I've had the opportunity to travel, so I did. This summer however, I will be staying home. Frankly, I'm looking forward to working in the yard and getting some home projects accomplished that I've had on the backburner for quit a while. Therefore, this painting is in honor of those who will hit the road for some long awaited journey. I, on the other hand, plan to seek the pleasures of my own back yard. Dorothy was right. There is no place like home.
